Abstract
Introduction: Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is a benign, hamartomatous, slow-growing lesion. The lesion, which is usually located in the anterior maxilla and is more prevalent in female patients, can be classified into three subgroups: follicular, extrafollicular, and peripheral.
Case Report: This paper discusses a case of a 19-year-old female presented with swelling of the anterior maxilla, and was diagnosed with extrafollicular adenomatoid odontogenic tumor. Long-term follow-up was carried out after surgical treatment of the lesion.
Conclusion: In case of the tumor contained cystic structures on histopathologic examination, long-term follow-up should be better to screen for possible recurrence of the tumor.

Keywords: Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor, Anterior maxilla, Cystic, Extrafollicular
